Lovely walk, picnic & fabulous view. What more could you want?

The Lake District never fails to amaze me with its fantastic views. Only regrets should have gone swimming.

Nice to see the book back again, going down for the 11th swim in the tarn this year and my 15th visit to the top of Beacon from Ulverston this year. Been up here well over 200 times over last 20 years.

The view well just amazing!
Caroline & Rosie (the dog) woof woof xx :)

22/8/10 Awesome box and book! I wish I had time to read it all! Bit windy. We emptied the box of some sticky things past their best. Sorry we didn’t leave anything. With my uncle, brother, sister and Mum – about to have lunch then for a paddle in the lake. Have a good time here!
Katherine 15 x#PS Used the perfume, needed it after the climb

A Favourite spot for a Sunday afternoon. Used to be so quiet but now gets busy!
Get off the summit & move down to the lake side of the hill, out of the wind & spend a few hours reading a book. Perfectly peaceful.

Just bivvied out at Beacon Tarn. Lay back and watched the most superb ‘planetarium’ unfold as the last rays of the sun disappeared... Now, mist hangs in the valleys clinging to the lake like a blanket! I am in awe! ...back to the tarn for tea, bacon and eggs!

Camping at Birch Bank Farm, have walked up Little & Great Burney & just kept on Cumbria Way. “Shall we go up to the Beacon again?” “Yes.” 2nd time up here, a wonderful sight & so lovely to see the box & fill it in again.
Catherine & Stephen Atkinson
Thank you for leaving the little blue treasure box.

Missed the crowds! & enjoying the peace & quiet - apart from breeze & twittering wheatears – much the same view for last 60 yrs!
Yes – I’m now a ‘pensioner’! - & have been climbing Beacon Fell nearly all my life! Lovely as ever – the view!!

Woo! We made it to the top!! Just had a little but helpful climb and about to swim in the tarn!!
Rest in Peace Betty (spaniel) xxx
Final resting place for Betty, our faithful spaniel – cast on the winds – gone to the big cheese in the sky!! We love you Betty.

Came up to watch the sunset – 30 minutes of storming to the top & the cloud came down and hid the sun! Ate some bilberries & had some tea. Still a lovely view. Great to be at the top of the hill we have been watching from the barn all week!
Ruth, Steve & Emma (6)

I came to watch the sunset and ate some bilberries but had strong winds. (We left a tracker bar.)

PS Can see the rain coming.

Why is there rubbish in the treasure box. Very windy and the tarn is pretty. Do not walk any further because the next tarn is a waste of time. Do not eat the crisps they are stale. Rubbish treasure box. Why is the book pink. Rains all the time.
Joe Taylor

Thurs 5th August 2010-09-05 Down at Beacon Tarn paddling in the water, skimming, having so much fun then climbing up this Beacon Fell. What a view. What a lake.
